    Malaysia gets 2013 Honda Airblade

    Have to say I used to find it a real pain that LOS tended to have a better range of small scoots than Malaysia (where I split my time when not in LOS) where the Wave, EX5 and Spacy and Icon dominated on the Honda front. Previously no PCX or Click.

    Malaysia got the PCX last year (albeit 30K THB more expensive there thanks to Malaysia import taxes) but much as I like the PCX I'm not 100% sure about the cruiser style (albeit if I was regularly doing any kind of distance riding the PCX would be the number one choice). Being tall with long legs I find I'm often pushed to far back on the PCX's seat for my liking, or at least for where I do the majority of riding there, in town in fairly dense traffic. I find I get less body control with the PCX, much as I really like the bike. For dense urban traffic I actually prefer the more upright feel of the Click and I do think the new 125i Click is a great bike for Patong and have waited a long time hoping Malaysia would get it. No joy

    The Click has still not surfaced but the new 2013 Airblade has Most impressed with the look of that I must say. Plan to go take a look at the showroom when I get back. 125cc, PGM-FI, Idle Stop, Combi Brake, Remote Key Bike Loaction (flashes the headlights and sounds horn when pressed - great for the often massive town centre parking lots where bike parking can make Soi Sansabai look quiet). I prefer what I see as the more regular underbone style of the Airblade (despite Honda calling the Click and undergone) too, and the twin rear shocks. At RM 7,700 it also doesn't seem vastly different to the price Thailand would get it at given the price of the old Airblade here in LOS before.

    I've not seen the new Airblade here at all, not sure if it's been released and is just scarce (I know they are crazy popular in 'Nam) or if it's not come out. Looks a fine bike though.

    Ok, cheers. I did ponder putting it here but resisted only because I thought it wasn't Thai specific enough 555. I figure the Airblade will be this year's Christmas presie to myself
